About Us 2020-03-26T19:45:31+00:00

The science of social media is not hard to understand, but optimising social media in STEMM industries requires specialist STEMM knowledge, influence and networks.

The Social Science is a specialist digital and social media marketing and communications consultancy for Australia’s innovation technology industries, with a predominant focus on life sciences and health.  Our language, experience and networks are largely within professional sectors that are typically highly regulated and operate within reasonably complex technical or specialised environments and language. We have a clear vision as to how life science sectors can use digital tools and platforms, such as social media, to amplify and advance the profile of organisations and individuals.
